Back in 1928 the jewelry collection of Jean Deprés was considered too modern for “Le salon d’Automne”. Deprés was one of the pioneers in art-deco jewelry and was a close friend of Picasso.They were often visiting the Bateau-Lavoir at Montmartre.

Typical for his work are the strict lines and geometrical patterns. He is working with silver and semi-precious stones, so he could lower the price. He designed small collections and unique pieces. One of his clients was Andy Wharhol and also topmodel Stephanie Seymour.

At the exhibitions ” Bijoux art déco et avant-garde, Jean Deprés et les bijoutiers modernes” is still running in the Musée des Arts Décoratifs until July 12th.
